2014 Bentley Mulsanne vs. Its Competition

2014 Bentley Mulsanne
Davis Adams Davis Adams Contributor

The Mulsanne has only one real competitor, and that's the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

While the brands were once bound together, recent years have seen fierce competition between the two, as each has sought to define its own niche offering.

For the buyer who could be made happy in either car, both come with a level of opulence and performance not found elsewhere in the market–and the same could be said for their pricing.

The Mulsanne has the edge on power, though the ultimate choice will come down to aesthetics and preference–as any good luxury purchase should.
